Beauty and Success

If you’re a beautiful woman, will you be successful?

What does it mean to be beautiful? Symmetry in face, a healthy body, a good hip-to-waist ratio? Biologically, concepts of beauty pertain to these attributes and some say a male finding a female mate looks for these qualities along with the ability to breed strong children. Even deeper into biology, men are attracted to women who have the opposite immunity genes to females to maintain health and balance.

What does it mean to be beautiful in the fashion, pop-culture, film, and the entertainment industry as a woman? To be within a certain age bracket, a certain weight, a certain height, certain dimensions, to have particular facial structures and body structures. When did gap teeth become beautiful, a big booty, over plumped lips?

Trends in beauty come and go and differ from culture and culture but symmetry and health will always be biologically attractive in human nature.

As I write this, beauty is actually not the subject. Beauty in a woman is what is praised. Should it be?

I started the Woman’s Crush Wednesday Club because the meaning meant something that was beautiful to look at. Girls of all ages using social media became to acknowledge that self-obsession and one’s appearance to the world is what got them “liked”. I “Like” you because you are beautiful.

WHAT? When in this period of time since Facebook, Instagram and Twitter started that women started taking themselves for granted, showing their only worth and VALUE was their appearance and how many “likes” their photos got them?

And it is value in both a sense of self confidence and a monetary one because not only do girls get more self-confidence based on the number of likes their pictures get but, at a tipping point over a certain number of followers, they can capitalize on it. They can become the “Model” that they always dreamed they would be, even if they couldn’t be one in real life because their looks, dimensions and photographic ability wouldn’t allow them to.

Their Instagram Model status made them a lucrative commodity of superficial fakeness which makes them a sellable product. Even a service which can then sell products. And, you know what, that’s fine. That’s more than fine as they have turned their time spent photographing themselves into a business. Look at The Kardashians. Hats off to them. Their reality show, sex tape, social media profiles, social media propaganda, manipulated “on-screen” lives have become a hugely successful business.

So let’s get back to Woman’s Crush Wednesday Club. On social media, one’s Woman’s Crush Wednesday can be a variety of hot, sexy, quite often half naked women who may or may not be famous in any respects. Is that wrong? No. But I decided to start a club where girls of all ages could see that supporting and promoting actual successful, inspiring women who have worked hard and achieved something admirable in business, fashion, entrepreneurship, tech, media, law, entertainment were to be praised to. For the young girls we raise shouldn’t just be praising these demagogues of the “Instagram Model”, they should be praising women who have worked hard when there still is a glass ceiling and became their own boss in a line of work which wasn’t just about taking selfies.

Look at Sheryl Sandberg, Arianna Huffington, Oprah Winfrey, Michelle Obama, Hillary Clinton, Marissa Myer, and others.

With the Woman’s Crush Wednesday Club, my company JPR Media Group partners with senior management from luxury brands like Ralph Lauren, Coach, Fendi, Stella McCartney, Liberty, Tod’s, Christian Dior Beauty, Roland Mouret, Felder Felder and we celebrate successful inspiring women who have worked hard to achieve something admirable.
